Today I’m reviewing the Costco Sander Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Caramels! These are available in the US and Eastern Canada. We were recently travelling so I picked these up to review. Hopefully, they will make their way to Western Canada soon!

Other delicious chocolates from Costco are the Lindt Lindor Assorted Chocolates, CHOCXO Mini Hedgehogs, Truffettes De France Chocolate Truffles and the Costco Kirkland Signature Macadamia Clusters

They’re not small-sized carmels! They’re actually quite large.

Taste

I absolutely love the Sanders Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Caramels from Costco. I’m warning you though: they’re addictive. The caramel is nice and soft and chewy. There’s a lot more caramel than chocolate, the layer of chocolate is quite thin.

There’s not a ton of sea salt but there are definite hints of sea salt coming from the coarse sea salt that’s the outside of the chocolates. The taste is rich and decadent. I like how they’re not super sweet, they have a good amount of sweetness but I find them more rich than sweet.

Cost

The cost $11.79 Canadian at Costco, which in my opinion is actually really reasonable!

Convenience

The Sanders caramels come in a big plastic resealable tub with a screw top. This keeps them fresh for longer. The best before date is 14 months from the date we got them.

Both kids and adults love these, I recommend them as a gift or just to have around the house to offer to people for the holiday season.

If these were available where I live, I’d totally buy more. Even if you usually don’t like dark chocolate I still suggest trying these!

Have you tried these? What do you think of them?

  1. I made the mistake and bought Sanders small batch wonders twice, never again, they suck! Chocolate is great but, the caramel is dry, dark and bizarre! It’s like molasses caramel, not real buttery creamy caramel. It’s like WTF caramel?

  2. Sanders has been around since 1875. It’s home is in Michigan and has a full line of chocolates, cakes ect. I grew up there and we always had the cakes and candy.I live on the west coast now and miss them. I hope we do get them in BC.

  3. Yes these are tasty morsels. There’s no way I could eat 2! In fact, I wish they were smaller.
    I’m in Ontario but Costco doesn’t carry the ginger cookies that you get in the west. I’d trade them in a heartbeat!
